Delicious ways to reduce food waste

World’s First Jet Black Tomato Plant

Leave a comment

A plant nursery has become the first in Britain to grow BLACK tomatoes. The unusual fruit, which has a jet black skin, is among the first in the world to contain anthocyanins, an antioxidant thought to have a number of health benefits. Its unusual colour stems from pigments in the skin which develop when exposed to sunlight. Ray Brown, 66, who runs Plant World Seeds, first came across the unusual fruit when a customer sent him a mystery package entitled “black tomato”. Disbelieving the label, he sowed the product and was stunned by the outcome.
